Poetry In Motion For 'Safe On The Street' Competition

Year 4 Winner Of 'Safe On The Street' Competition

Four winners have been selected from over 2,500 entries in the BMW Education Programme ‘Safe on the Street’ competition.

Primary schools throughout the United Kingdom were invited to participate in the competition, which consisted of five simple multiple choice questions, and the tie-breaker was to write a poem on road safety. Schools were encouraged to hold their own competitions and submit the top entry in each Year.

Over 24,000 schoolchildren participated in the programme and the poems demonstrated a high level of creativity and awareness of road safety issues that children have today.

"We are delighted that the competition provided an opportunity for young people to develop their creative writing skills at the same time as providing valuable tips on road safety," said Jim O’Donnell, Managing Director of BMW Great Britain.

Naomi, Kevin, David and Lee each win £200 for their school, a special BMW gift and a certificate for themselves in recognition of their outstanding achievement.
